Yesterday my friend and I were talking about how her son (who just graduated kindergarten a few days ago) told her that the teacher was pulling children in the class aside (from what I understand, each of them) and telling them (paraphrased) that God makes parents to take care of the babies and the parents don't make them, God does. What would you have done if this had happened at your school, with your child? (she called and complained, but I forget the position of the person she spoke to. whoever it was did seem to take her seriously, though, and didn't just write her off)
Do you feel it's appropriate for a teacher to say these things, or for anyone to speak to someone else's child that way, especially a child young enough to be in kindergarten? How would you have handled it, even just in terms of speaking with your child? (she told him that there are people who believe in God and people who don't, and that both are okay)
For those who may say that they see nothing wrong with this (just in case there are any), what if it were reversed, and a teacher had said that God had nothing to do with it, and that the parents did it all by themselves, or if the teacher had said that a different God were responsible for their birth and that the parents, and the parents' God, had nothing to do with it?
